Their experience and performance content has, over the years, taken them to many varied venues including Folk Clubs, Arts Centres, Theatres, PTA & Sports Clubs, Round Table & Masonic evenings, TV & Radio, around the world including Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Brunei, Oman, the Falkland & Ascension Islands, Belize, Cyprus, Sardinia and several European Countries. Contacting the audience is uppermost in each of Gary & Vera Aspeys performances, when presenting their songs (some as singer-song writers) combining the reality of life, the seriousness and the laughter of it all. Together with the tradition of the county inwhich they were born, when called upon to display Lancashire Clog Dancing, their performance constitutes:AN ASPEY EXPERIENCE. Instrumentation includes guitar, piano accordian and concertina, together with additional musicians at selected venues.

Tom Patterson & Dave Morton

TOM PATTERSON & DAVE MORTON Tom and Dave are based in the Midlands, but most of the songs(mainly written by Tom) are about the north east of England, his homeland. Tom sings and plays nylon strung guitar while Dave also plays guitar along with concertina and mandolin. Tom is a skilled songwriter, ably painting pictures of characters, stories and places he has come across over the years, all in the traditional idiom. In particular, he has the knack of writing a good chorus that stays with you for some time after.
